Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Gregory! Gregory only recently started getting into pedals as of a year ago, but at PedalsAndEffects we’re all about equal opportunity in innovation! Let’s take a look at what Gregory is working with:
Gregory starts off into an MXR Micro Amp, a great signal booster by the guys over at Dunlop. Whether you’re switching between an instrument with single coils and humbuckers, the Micro Amp is great in leveling out the signal. If you want an extra kick for some solo-ing goodness the Micro Amp is perfect for that too. After the Micro Amp are a series of discontinued Ibanez effects pedals. The Ibanez DE-7 Delay, and the Ibanez TC-7 “Tri-mode” Chorus. The DE-7 is a great inexpensive delay pedal (if you can find it) that does a great job of emulating old tape heads in the “echo” setting. The modulation is very warm and you can get some great dub tones out of it. I don’t have too much experience with the TC-7 but I imagine it does a great job at what it does. If you can find these Ibanez pedals they are much underrated diamonds in the rough. Great pick Gregory!
Up next is a Line 6 M9 Stompbox modeler. A smaller version of the Line 6 M13, the M9 is a combination effects modeler that combines the Line 6 DL4 delay, the MM4 Modulation modeler, the FM4 filter/synth modeler, and the DM4 distortion modeler along with another couple surprises. Though not as streamlined as the pedals are on their own, it takes a bit to tweak everything and add your own presets. It’s an all-in-one combo of these great pedals, and it will definitely save some real estate on your board. Gregory’s signal ends in an Ibanez WH10V2 wah pedal, and the whole board is powered by the innards of an SKB Footnote.
